26. Revealing the Glory of Pramukh Swami

In his diary Yogiji Maharaj describes the day when Shastriji Maharaj appointed Pramukh Swami as the President of the BAPS Sanstha, "Shastriji Maharaj desired to appoint him as the president, and thus did so in Ahmedabad. I was sitting besides Shastriji Maharaj, who told me, 'Place your hand on his head so that he acquires the virtues you have.' So I placed my hand on his head, whereupon Shastriji Maharaj said, 'Having placed your hand, my hand has also been placed!' In this way he had my hand placed and was very happy."
During the 48th birthday celebration of Pramukh Swami Maharaj in Bombay, Yogiji Maharaj said, "Shastriji Maharaj had his divine grace upon him since he was young. He then appointed him as the president. How much he has increased the Satsang fellowship! Everyone should obey Pramukh Swami Maharaj. Pramukh Swami is the manifestation (swarup) of Shastriji Maharaj - there is not an iota of difference. Such divine feelings one should have for him. We wish to make 700 sadhus and it will be fulfilled by Pramukh Swami." Thus declaring Pramukh Swami as his successor Yogiji Maharaj left this mortal world in Bombay.
Before Yogiji Maharaj departed from his earthly existence on 27 Jan 1971, he said "Pramukh Swami is my all. You will all from now onwards experience bliss through Pramukh Swami."
Today, one experiences the divine manifestation of Lord Swaminarayan, Shastriji Maharaj and Yogiji Maharaj through HDH Pramukh Swami Maharaj.
